Welcome to Reception At Belvedere Infant School


Reception Outside Learning Area

We are very lucky at Belvedere Infant and Nursery School to have an amazing, newly built outside learning environment. In this area we have a large sandpit, performance area, reading hut, role play areas, water exploration area, English, Maths, Construction and Creative areas. This large space allows the children to transfer their learning and skills from the classroom, to their outside activities. 

Safe ~ Happy ~ Learning

Children in Reception access the seven areas of learning through a wide range of adult and child led activities. Children are encouraged to use their senses to explore the world around them, learn through their play and develop their speech, language and communication skills in our language rich environment.

Independent Learning Opportunities

Teachers set up the classrooms with a range of exciting and engaging activities that are practical and multi-sensory. Activities are linked to the half termly topic or the key text for the week. Children have a wide range of resources in the classrooms that they can access freely to support their independent learning activities. Activities are set up to provide children with opportunities to practise their speaking and listening skills and encourage them to practise reading and writing throughout the day. 

Children's Art Gallery

Art Gallery coming very soon!

As we have some brilliant artists at Belvedere Infant School, we will soon like to share the joy of Art with our wonderful community. We have been inspired by Mind and Exeter University's new research on nature and wellbeing and our recent Art project has been to create a piece of artwork linked to our Class name animal using any media which has been inspired by nature. We can't wait to shortly post our masterpieces with you all!

If you would like to submit any artwork you complete at home that is linked to this then please email a picture of your piece to rthandi@belvedere-inf.bexley.sch.uk with your full name and year group. Miss Thandi will be then be posting your art work submissions to the new virtual gallery that is coming soon.  The art work will be posted here on the school website with children's first names only. If you would like the artwork to be anonymous however, then please mention this in the email. This will be an on-going project as we would love to keep filling our virtual gallery with your inspired Art. We can't wait to see your spectacular creations and hope to see you get involved!
